Some more home decorating advice this week focused on area rugs: this one from The Lowell Sun. The article offers a brief primer on the many advantages of choosing area rugs, such as colorful Persian rugs, to complete the look of any room. The writer has this to say about the perennial dilemma about how to fill out a living room area:

Those of us at Catalina Rug applaud the growing trend toward considering the rug an artistic centerpiece rather than an afterthought. Whimsical exhibits such as this one only underscore the point that rugs are art, and that sometimes the perfect centerpiece can elevate everything else in the room.
